Mustang theme for my Ranger?

Ok, so now that im getting the mustang Bullet wheels, im wondering what mustang I should make the truck after.....like maybe put graphics or something, to make it stand out (as if orange paint wasn't enough lol). Just looking for ideas on what I should do.

You could make it a thunderbolt ranger.. just get that grille colormatched, a different valence, lower it, and slap some t-bolt stickers on it.. it'd be different, that's for sure!

sounds like your going a little overboard

2/3 wont be low enough you wont be happy 4/5 the damn thing, get some clear corners a billet grille a rollpan and a bedcover and you will appreciate it more than the "gay mustang theme"

No point in putting on cobra emblems if its got a 2.5

Ride qaulity is about the same as stock amd Im dropped 5/6 Just trim the bumpstops or slap in a bolt in notch and your fine.

People say lowered trucks ride like ****, In honestly if you drop it the right way and put nice shocks on and a notch in the back if you go over 5 inches it will ride fine if not better than stock.

I think a good static drop and a rollpan and bedcover would be a good start.

If you wanna get really wild, swap a mustang dash in there! I've seen it done once... it was pretty sweet.
